We stopped here for breakfast because I wanted a crab omelette. Unfortunately, the crab omelette wasn't available, but the crab quiche was. It was super tasty. Great place for breakfast.

The haddock sandwich is big and really tasty. Friendly staff and service is quick. The fish chowder is full of haddock and very good. Also great place to have breakfast!

Stopped in for Saturday morning breakfast with wife and kids. Service was great. Checked on us a couple times and kept the coffee cups full. My ham and cheese omelette was on point as were the short stack of pancakes. Delicious!

Stopped here for a quick bite to eat, got in just before closing at 2pm. Staff friendly & efficient, nobody rushed us. Pancakes & French toast are a must. Obviously popular with the locals. A must find & enjoy.

This whole in the wall was a nice find driving between Bar Harbor and Bangor. It was extremely busy. It's a diner type breakfast but the camp cakes with bacon were so good. I never clean my plate like that. Service was pretty good.
